Peninsula Bombers have redeemed themselves for their round 1 loss, achieving their first win of the season on Saturday by defeating the Saints by four goals.

From the outset it looked as though Saints were not playing around, with an early goal by Wayne Milgin.

However, the Bombers retaliated with two goals from Solomon Peumorra.

What followed was a fast-paced first term, with the two teams producing an even contest, with goals from Leigh Hislop, Aaron Cox and Bart Djiagween.

The Bombers went on to lead by 19 points at quarter-time. In the second quarter, the Saints strove for an early comeback with goals by Michael Pigram and Giovanni Hunter, although Bombers’ Peumorra and Jayden Howard ensured their team kept the lead at half-time.

After the main break, Saints continued to fight for the lead but they were struggling to convert as the Bombers increased the margin.

Despite late goals, the Saints trailed by six goals at the last change.

The final quarter proved too little too late for the Saints, with the Bombers securing the 16.10 (106) to 12.10 (82) win.

The Bombers will look to score an upset win over table-toppers Cable Beach Greenbacks at Haynes Oval on Saturday, while Saints will take on Towns later that day.
